Boxing A moving post-fight moment from Oscar Valdez
Oscar Valdez fulfilled a lifelong dream on Saturday by becoming the WBC super featherweight champion after beating Miguel Berchelt.
However, what stood out the most was the humility of Valdez.
The blow that won him the fight was brutal and there were some moments of concern for Berchelt‘s wellbeing.
Valdez went and crouched down beside Berchelt‘s chair, where he was being treated, and chatted to his opponent for a few moments, showing respect and concern.
Valdez again showed his human side on Instagram on Sunday.
“I want to wish the best to my friend Berchelt,” he wrote.
“I’m sure he can be a world champion again because he’s a true warrior.
“I have nothing but respect for him.
“I hope you return to the ring soon, champion.”
